davidgcet is on a distinguished road

you say old, does it have rotators or strobes? with rotators you need a DC power supply capable of 30-50A continuous duty. With strobes it can be considerably less at maybe 20A continuous. in either case, no you cannot just plug it in to AC power.

you cheapest solution would be to wire it up to a car battery and recharge the battery when not in use. BUT don't expect it to run for hours on end unless you have a big battery!
